Last day of school! Woohoo!

I am absolutely exhausted after a term at the most high-expectations-of-the-students school in the city. I learned a lot, but I am absolutely pooped. I plan to sleep heaps during the holidays. Sleeping in until 10:00 seems very appealing at the moment.

Aside from that, today my friend and I presented a presentation to the class about Croatians who immigrated to New Zealand. Did you know that they were the founders of the New Zealand wine industry? Or that they invented the gum spear? We also had a shared lunch, and each person brought along a dish from the culture they had been working on. My partner and I brought along spiced pancakes. Yum! Except the Croatians probably didn’t have whipped cream, golden syrup, and chocolate sprinkles on theirs. Hmmm. Oh well. They tasted good. Many thanks to my Mum for waking up early to make them for me!

So the last day of school way relatively successful. But I’m still looking forward to catching up on my sleep.
